We didn't really have a set itinerary for Chicago so much of our time was spent walking around rather aimlessly. I think the best discovery of our trip was this amazing event space and floral studio, A New Leaf. The place reminded me of my favorite community garden (on 9th and C blogged about here and here) but on crack. My pictures do not do this place justice.
Also all the workers there were super friendly and nice. Especially when I was poking my head into every little corner and snapping pictures - they were so welcoming about it all. I wanted to share this place so much that I purposefully shot it all on digital so I wouldn't be waiting on my film!
I think there was a wedding scheduled there later that day. The event space, which is connected to the studio, is stunning with very cool architecture. I would kill to shoot a wedding there. :)
